What a week!
Busy busy busy at work
(end of school term)
and revolving doors at home.
One of those weeks,
y'know what I mean?
But it's Friday
and I've got some positives
to put under the spotlight.
In no particular order.....
Schools out for summer!
Tom won The Apprentice.
It was a real nail biter of a final
and I really felt for Helen who had done so well throughout,
BUT with so many ideas up his sleeve
Tom was the best candidate and he won!
It made me smile when I got a happy dance email from Carmen
within minutes of the winner being announced.
DS Luke has finished with school.
What happened to the little boy wearing cute little shorts,
not wanting me to leave him in Reception class?
Where did this long lanky bean pole come from?
For that matter,
who is that old woman grimacing at me in the mirror?!
I WON the 100+ post giveaway
on Susan T's lovely blog
Sue generously offered up a Chanel frippery of choice.
A luxury that would not usually be purchased.
As I usually only buy cosmetics that are on special offer
in Boots I enjoyed poring over that Chanel website,
like I was one of those ladies that lunches, and finally
chose a gorgeous 'nude' lip gloss.
I'm going to look absolutely GORGEOUS, dahling!
Thank you so much, Sue.
Here's to the next 100+ posts.
Lovely Ken, the oven cleaning man, came yesterday.
Whistling along to Radio 2 as he worked,
he has restored my oven to it's full shiny glory.
Trouble is, when it's just been 'done',
I can't bear to cook a roastie in it,
so it's salad for tea until the novelty wears off.
hanging on in there
She and I have a daily battle
when I hide her tablet medication in her food
and she finds it, and shakes it out.
At the moment I have an
8/10 success rate.
Not perfect but the best I can do.
'Pawly' patient catching up on some R and R.
Nurse Rosie also catching up on some R and R!
I had my hair cut yesterday.
That always lifts my spirits and
makes me feel 3 stone lighter.
Finally, all 26 children in my class
made me a little card
thanking me for working with them
(the teacher's idea).
Out of them all this one in particular caught my eye.
Made by a sweet little girl (8 or 9 years old) who isn't,
maybe, academically gifted
but look at this lovely drawing.
It's of her talking to me
under a flowery arch.
Look at the simplicity of the drawing,
the freedom in those lines.
And actually, that does look rather like me!
She should start Art Journalling now!
Have a great weekend
and if you can,
try and focus on the POSITIVE!
